"Maud simply wanted to live in Paris, with or without a husband, preferably without. While careful not to let her thoughts show on her severe and slightly disdainful golden face, Maud had a secret desire to escape all forms of control."

"A few people were interrupted mid-errand to stare. All eyes were on the elderly woman limping and quacking."

Oops! My Teaser Tuesday post popped up on Monday. I can only blame user error.ReplyDelete
It is now going to disappear until tomorrow.
Michelle -- thanks for the note and your teaser! Your comment will come back tomorrow too.
Great teaser! Maud sounds like such a typical Brookner type, with her "slightly disdainful" face. Love her books.ReplyDelete
